About Us


Mission Mentor seeks to foster one-on-one relationships between Mission Hill youth and area university students and graduates in order to broaden children's access and exposure to the resources in Boston and beyond. Through encouragement and friendship, Mission Mentor strives to increase the confidence and optimism with which youth approach their own education and future.

Mission Mentor is affiliated with Mission Hill After-School Program (MHASP), a program that strives to provide individual attention within a classroom setting, with both homework assistance and by working with the children on a creative curriculum designed by program Coordinators. The 60+ children who participate in MHASP are divided into four age groups, and Mission Mentor works with the children from the oldest age group (approximately ages 11 to 15).
